Our Favorite Super Bowl Appetizers

Cauliflower Buffalo Bites

1 cup nondairy milk

1 cup whole wheat pastry flour

1 teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon onion powder

1/8 teaspoon black pepper

1 teaspoon paprika

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes

1 cauliflower head, broken into florets

10 ounces oil-free Frank’s Red Hot Sauce

1 cup blue cheez Dressing

Carrot/Celery sticks, for serving

Directions:

  1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In a mixing bowl, whisk together the milk, flour, spices, and nutritional yeast flakes.
  3. Place all the cauliflower pieces in the milk mixture and coat thoroughly.
  4. Spread the cauliflower on the prepared baking sheet and bake for 20-30 minutes, or until light golden brown.
  5. Once the cauliflower florets are crisp and golden, coat them with the buffalo sauce and bake for an additional 5-10 minutes.  Serve with Blue Cheez Dressing and carrots and celery sticks.

Blue Cheez Dressing

1/8 cup raw cashews

4 ounces extra-firm tofu

1 clove garlic

1/2 teaspoon sea salt

3 tablespoons tahini

3 tablespoons lemon juice

1 teaspoon white vinegar

½ tablespoon Dijon mustard

3 tablespoons apple cider vinegar

2 teaspoons maple syrup

1 tablespoons water

2 tablespoons dried chives

¼ cup crumbled extra firm tofu

Directions:

Place all the ingredients (except chives and 1/4 cup extra firm crumbled tofu) into a high powered blender and blend until smooth.  Place into a bowl and fold in the crumbled tofu and chives.


Spinach Artichoke Dip

This cheesy dip makes the perfect party dish.  We use it for toasted cheese sandwich filling or as a topping for baked potatoes or pasta with grilled veggies. The combinations are never ending.

Ingredients:

Cheese Sauce

½ cup raw cashews

1 ½ cup plant based milk

1 tablespoon miso paste

5 tablespoons tapioca starch (tapioca flour) No Substitutions Here!!

2 tablespoons nutritional yeast flakes

½ teaspoon garlic powder

½ teaspoon onion powder

1 teaspoon lemon juice

¼ teaspoon sea salt (or to taste)

 Vegetable Filling

1 cup artichoke hearts, chopped

½ cup red onion, finely diced

4 cloves garlic, minced

2 cups chopped frozen spinach (you can also use fresh here too)

¼ cup plant based milk

¼ teaspoon salt

¼ teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place the cheese mixture into a high powered blender and blend until smooth and creamy.
  3. In a saucepan, whisk the cheese mixture over medium heat until thick and bubbly. It will appear to get lumpy but if you are patient, it will become evenly thickened and stretchy. That is the unique part of tapioca starch, it creates a thick and stretchy consistency!  It should take about 5 minutes to cook.
  4. Fold the filling mixture into the cheese sauce until the ingredients are completely combined. Place the ingredients into an oven safe 8 x 8 inch baking dish and bake for 20 minutes.
  5. Once fully cooked, broil for 3 minutes or until the top of the cheese mixture is golden brown. Serve with bread, chips, or veggies.

Last Friday night we launched the new version of our PlantPure Entrees on Amazon, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  We are humbled by some of the great reviews, and are also taking note of the suggestions people have provided.  
One thing we noticed was a trend of some of our meals being delivered with seals that were not fully intact.

From Plants to Politics

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
